About me

I am an experienced qualified and accredited Integrative Counsellor, with over 15 years experience.  I draw on various approaches (Psychodynamic, CBT and Humanistic) to suit each individual client, with an aim of helping you explore your emotional and mental health concerns.

As a NHS Counsellor and Supervisor, I work with a wide range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, stress, self esteem, bereavement, PTSD/Trauma, childhood trauma, anger management, loss, long term health conditions; sexual abuse, relationship and family issues, cultural concerns, work related issues and spirituality.

My years of experience as a Counsellor include working as a University Counsellor, Bereavement Counsellor at St Christopher's Hospice, London where I co-facilitated a Bereavement Training course.  At MIND mental health charity and with RASAC for women who experienced rape and sexual abuse.

I work successfully with Couples, Individuals, Groups and Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP's), including BUPA & AVIVA, providing counselling for short term and longer term; as well as Supervision for Counsellors.

I offer one to one, open ended and short-term therapy to young people, adults and couples in a supportive, encouraging, confidential and safe environment.

Couples Therapy

Couples need to be a team and sometimes need a team around them.  I, as your Counsellor, am that for you. Whether to improve aspects of your relationship or if you are in the process of separation and/or divorce help in easing this often difficult transition.

My role is to help you:

  • Build better communication skills
  • Explore renewed ways of trusting each other
  • Problem solve together
  • Plan for the future
